Specifically, we needed to change CIL neither because there is anything
wrong with it, nor because we like gratuitously forking existing
projects, but because we needed to add support for ACSL annotations
and also because some of CIL transformations, which can remove bugs,
were fine in the context of a transformer of correct programs but
were not acceptable in the context of a collection of correct static
analyzers. The philosophy for the latter transformations is to
keep them but insert in the AST enough information to determine
at analysis time if there was a bug in the original code.
